I'm Tali | Cat Sitting in Chicago, IL

Hey there, I'm Tali! (TAH-lee) I am available for booking for one visit a day! I am quite literally *obsessed* with cats! I grew up with cats, volunteered at cat shelters, fostered cats in college, and now live with my perfect/sassy tortie named Gilly who is my most bestest friend. I love cat sitting because providing pet owners with relief that their babies are in loving hands is the best feeling in the world. I have had multiple experiences where a cat sitter fell short on their duties while watching my cat and it was incredibly stressful. I know how important it is to feel your furry baby is safe and I strive to go above and beyond to ensure your kitty is being treated like the royalty they are! You can expect prompt and clear communication from me as well as a plethora of pictures — either snuggling with your furry friend or resp...

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Firstly, I just love cats! I love getting to know each cat’s quirks and giving them the attention they deserve while their parents are away. I love providing relief to cat parents by updating them on all of the shenanigans their furbabies have been up to and providing tons of pictures so they can enjoy their time away without worrying!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

I have one 13 year old kitten named Gilly! She is a classic tortie and my best friend!

Tali's Reviews

Attention to Detail

Tali checking in on the cats got rid of all my anxiety during my trip. She communicated well, shared every last detail in her updates, and gave our cats some much needed attention and routine while we were gone! She even got some interaction from a couple of our shyer cats. I can’t thank her enough!

Tali was absolutely incredible with our sweet girl, Maple! She was attentive, provided thorough updates, and plenty of pictures. We appreciated how much time she spent giving Maple pets and cuddles. We felt so at ease with her watching Maple, and cannot recommend enough!!

Tali so sweet and dedicated — and I felt great about leaving for 4 days knowing she was looking out for my fuzzies. She was very communicative and sent lots of great photos after each visit! I would absolutely book her again.

Response from Tali on May 22, 2024 "I’m saddened to be rated 4/5 after providing detailed updates/pictures during my visits. I communicated exceedingly well and coordinated key arrangements after keys weren’t prepared during our initial meeting. If I wasn’t meeting expectations, I wish it was communicated prior."

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $32.00. Prices will also depend on how long your cat needs company for, whether that be a drop-in visit or overnight stay in your home. Meowtel sitters offer 20, 45, and 60-minute drop-in visits that allow for fully tailored care for your kitties. Your caregiver may also need to charge a little more if they have to travel far, so we'll match you with the best options which are close by.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel on eligible reservations via our Meowtel Promise. To ensure total peace of mind while you're away, every Meowtel reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you (and your kitties!) can have full confidence in your sitter before you leave.

Cats are territorial animals and don't do well in new environments. The presence of other cats, dogs, and even birds in kennels or animal hotels cause an immense amount of stress for your kitties. This is why Meowtel was created, so tailored in-home care is brought to you.

We recommend that you book daily visits with your sitter to keep your cats in their routine and to help minimize feline anxiety while you're away.

Each Meowtel cat sitting visit will include the whole 9 yards: feeding, refreshing the water bowls, litter box scooping, tidying up, medications, updates with photos, lots of playtime, as well as any special requests you may have. We know every kitty is different and that's why we offer tailored, in-home services since cats don't do well outside their own homes. Plus, every reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you can meet your sitter before you leave to ensure it will be a purrfect fit.
